Currently Dean of Students at Cornell University, I serve as the primary liaison between students and university administration welcoming students' ideas and concerns during office hours, or through email (dean_of_students@cornell.edu) or phone calls to (607) 255-1115.
The Robert W. and Elizabeth C. Staley Dean of Students and Professor of Architecture at Cornell, I received my Bachelor of Architecture Degree in 1969 from Cornell and a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Sculpture in 1973 from Yale. In 1969-70, as a Peace Corps Architect, I designed and built dispensaries, schools and small hospitals in the atolls of Micronesia.
The offices and programs that I oversee as Dean of Students include: student activities; student and community support; new student programs; the LGBT Resource Center; fraternity, sorority and independent living; the Intercultural Center; international students and scholars; residential programs; and religious ministries. I also have oversight over three of Cornell’s most historic buildings: Anabel Taylor Hall; Sage Chapel; and Willard Straight Hall.
I am a Professor of Architecture at Cornell University where I was the Chairman of the Architecture Department and Nathaniel & Margaret Owings Distinguished Alumni Professor from 1993-1998. For 18 years, I was Professor of Architecture at the University of Michigan and Chairman of the Architecture Program from 1985-93. I taught at Yale, where I was Graham Foundation Research Fellow in the Arts, and have been lecturer, juror and critic at numerous other schools in the East and Midwest.
I am a licensed architect and was President of Chrysalis Corp. Architects until 1984 when I formed K.L. Hubbell Inc, Architects. The firms have won numerous awards, including a National AIA Honor Award for the Hershman House, Chicago (1981), and various regional AIA honor awards for projects in Michigan and Wisconsin. I won a Michigan Governor's Award for Design Excellence, have received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, The New York State Council for the Arts, Cornell Council for the Arts and the Rackham Graduate School of the University of Michigan. Both architectural firms have been especially well known for their work in the area of fabric structures. I completed a 5000 seat covered river front theater for Chene Park, Detroit, a Metro Transit Park and Ride facility in Seattle, as well as designs for public events facilities in Grand Rapids and Muskegon, Michigan, and Taipei, Taiwan.
